While everything has changed in recent days regarding how and where large groups can congregate, things were much less tense when our engineering team headed out to Atlanta for MODEX 2020 earlier this month. They’re home safe and sound now, of course, and we’d love to share some of the sights and themes that they brought us from the show.

We’ve been at this for a long time. With more than 15 years in the fulfillment business and decades of collective experience in and around the supply chain, it’s fair to say we’ve seen our share of changes.
Capacity was founded in 1999, so we can claim to have operated in something of a pre-digital era — or, at least, a time when Wi-Fi wasn’t the first thing people asked about when they walked in the door!
We are often asked what kind of changes we’ve seen over the years and thought answering this would be an appropriate way to end our month exploring the ongoing evolution of order fulfillment. Continue reading Ask Capacity: How Has the Fulfillment Business Changed Over the Years?
